Kirby Smart’s Georgia football program enters spring practice with visions of a three-peat.

All that stands between the Georgia football team and a most sacred three-peat is 14 or 15 wins!

All the Dawgs do is win, win, win, no matter what, under Kirby Smart. They have won 29 games over the last two years, and only lost once! Although Stetson Bennett IV is going to be 26-years-old in the NFL next season, are you really going to take the field over the Dawgs? Their schedule is Charmin soft (RIP Oklahoma game), but their roster is more loaded than a fricking Bonaroo lineup.

Not to say we will know if the Dawgs are three-peating just yet, but keep an eye on these three positive signs from spring practice. If these all unfold, it should be a good time in Athens yet again.

Georgia football: 3 signs to let you know if Dawgs are elite or not for three-peat

3. Let Javon Bullard and Malaki Starks lead the defense from the secondary

In the last two championship runs, Georgia has been led by its defensive linemen, as well as its linebacking corps. Together, the Swedish fish connoisseur Jordan Davis and linebacker extraordinaire Nakobe Dean were unanimous All-Americans in 2021 before becoming Philadelphia Eagles teammates in 2022. How they ended up on the same team in the NFL, we will never know.

As for the not-as-impressive 2022 Georgia defense, the Dawgs were led by Breadman Jalen Carter and emotional support leader Nolan Smith. While Carter has some legal issues to sort out, Smith turned all the heads at the NFL combine. I think it is safe to say his torn pec is back to good. But for Georgia to even think about three-peating, the Dawgs will need their secondary to carry them.

Fortunately, Ohio State favorite Javon Bullard and the unbearable weight of massive talent known as Malaki Starks will be back in the Classic City. They may be losing Kelee Ringo, but think about how much they will save on laundry. Overall, I think with two of the most supremely talented defensive backs this side of the Mississippi back in Athens will keep those Dawgs in contention.

Above all else, we need Starks to ball so his former teammate Sammy “The Vibe” Brown commits.
